    Who uses Klout anymore? I used it a year ago but it seems pointless.

    Lots of people have been saying “Klout is Dead!”. It’s interesting to see Bing with this pick up and how it will help Klout grow over the coming months and if more people adapt it into their social profiles and networking plans. I also felt Klout was on the downturn…

    After reading this article, I shocked that bing pick up the klout and show in search result. I do not like to use klout due to its disadvantages such as it ignores Pinterest, the system is full of holes and robots are more influential than warren buffet.

    This is Bing’s desperate attempt to mimic Google Authorship.

    But the problem is that we have to use Bing to see it.

    yes…but it’s a smart move, in my opinion.

    I totally agree with you @willewb:disqus

    It’s a pretty meaningless move, I think: another case of putting lipstick on the proverbial pig. Do real-world users care about Klout? Have real-world users even know about Klout? And outside the U.S., how many users will even see the “Klout-verified Snapshots” (or Bing, for that matter)?

    Bing needs to forget about gimmicks and focus on the basics.

    No doubt Klout is Dead and this move will not give any big benefits to individuals, There should be some kind of integration for companies, brands

    Brilliant. Especially when Bing is mixing up Klout scores for people with the same name (http://www.bing.com/search?q=danny+sullivan).

    Bing need to get their social integrations onto an international stage. All the news seems to be for US (perhaps Canada) only. I like what I hear but I’ve yet to see any of Bing’s innovations on the social front in the UK.
